East India (1990 version)
February 11, 2019
The East India is a brandy-forward, boozy concoction. With only a few modifiers in small measures, this one packs a punch. Note that this particular recipe isn't the original version of the East India cocktail that was published in 1882 but rather a subsequent version that was released 18 years later in the year 1900. The original version was raspberry syrup instead of pineapple syrup and Bokers bitters instead of Angostura.

The Dandy cocktail is one of the many forgotten recipes from Harry Craddock's Savoy Cocktail Book. The original formula calls for equal parts of bourbon and Dubonnet, creating a complex variant on a classic Manhattan. A well balanced combination of spirit, liqueur and aromatic wine.
